Well Equipped Enemy
Tiger 2 tanks, Royal Tigers. On the lower one, on a street somewhere, you can see the Zimmerit anti-magnetic paste applied to the outside so that a very brave Soviet soldier could not attach a magnetic mine. All the surfaces of this tank's armor have a slope to them which helps in surviving a hit from Allied cannon fire. Very good tank after they worked the kinks out. The Nazis didn't have enough of them to make any difference, however, producing less than 500 during the last years of the war.
